Definition of Pins

 Additional pinouts:

1.G / V(3.3V) / P3 / P4 / P6 are connectors for GVS electric bricks. Among it, P3 / P4 are connectors for analog / PWM / digital connectors, which can help you connect servos and various sensors conveniently.

2.UART Connector: V (3.3V) / G / TX / RX / S are serial port connectors. It is compatible with the common wireless communication modules like HC08 / HC11.

3.I2C Communication Connector: GND / VCC(3.3V) / SCL / SDA are standard I2C connector. It is compatible with 3.3V I2C sensors and devices.

4.SPI Communication Connector:V / G / CS / RS / AO / DA / CK correspond to the connector of a TFT 1.8 inch LCD module. It is directly compatible with many TFT 1.8 inch LCD modules, including SPI communication connector on micro:bit board.
